About the CEO / Founder

Gabon Adventure Tours is owned and operated by Julian Lerry Assoumou Ondo, who also guides many of the trips. Julian grew up learning how to hunt and fish in a village close to a big forest, which later became the Minkébé National Park and from where his tangible passion for the jungle was born.

Since the Gabonese wildlife legislation it is forbidden to hunt and kill large mammals, such as gorillas, elephants, manatees and hippos. Later in 2002 National Parks across the country had been created, which are about 11.25% of the Gabonese territory, to preserve the unique nature in Gabon.

Before this, as a child, Julian was able to pay school fees in carrying hunter’s bushmeat from the forest to the village for living or commercial use. Wildlife communities have been seriously depleted by the unregulated hunting regime which rapidly declined many species. Julian and many villagers, especially in forest areas, are working out new ways for the sustainability of the villages, like ecotourism.

Later, Julian went to Masuku University and after a BSc in Mathematics and Computer Science, he was traveling all around in Europe through Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Slovenia, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Crotia. He had to come to miss the real wildlife and his family and went back to Gabon. Nothing could have prepared him better for his next adventure which was to be the birth of Gabon Adventure Tours.

About the Company

Gabon Adventure Tours is an adventure travel company that specializes in wildlife and culture, fishing and hunting expeditions with small group sizes range from 2 to 10.
Gabon’s tourism industry is still in its infancy stage that's why it's still quite expensive to visit Gabon. In Gabon Adventure Tours, we're trying to find a middle way to make it easier and cheaper for nature enthusiasts to explore this unexplored part of Africa which offers a spectacular array of wildlife in its dense rainforests and open savannah.
Most of the national parks in Gabon are out of tourism infrastructures with some difficulties to access too. For this reason and depending of the tour description, we're expecting from our adventurers to be able for wild camping and to accept driving for hours in a 4WD car sometime in a bumpy road.
Because we're very picky about safety, to travel with us we strongly recommend to book an adventure travel insurance such as the World Nomad's offers which is a guarantee in case you need to be airlifted from the jungle to the nearest hospital.
